Cool Pink Garnet Diamond Inclusion

This interesting diamond inclusion was noticed when a customer brought in their loose diamond to set into a new mounting. The pink inclusion is actually garnet, not something that is typically seen and is know as an included crystal inclusion.

Included crystal inclusions are whole crystals or tiny included gem fragments of undigested crystals such as garnet, diopside, olivine, spinel, calcite, iron oxides, silica that diamond can form around.
